I got the worest present ever..... I started on my birthday. I am cd 1 today. :( I had so much hope and faith this month. I was on clomid and i used preseed and softcups.... Trying to not be upset today. I was spotting last night and had hope but knew i was starting. So i was such and emotional wreck. 

What more can i do this month to help me besides clomid, preseed and softcups. my husband really wants to try one more month before we do iui. What can my husband do? What can he do naturely to starte boosting his sperm count and all. Not sure yet if he has something wrong with him but i'm pretty sure. Please anyone everyone please help me have some hope again for this month. Its so hard to have faith and hope when you try and try and try and still nothing. This year and a half has been full of ups and downs... I don't know how much more i can do or do this :(

Dh and I started ttc November 2009 and March 2011 I got my bfp. Ds was born October 2011 on my birthday. :) it was worth the wait, he's my Booger butt now and he was the best birthday present I could have ever asked for!

Has your DH had an SA done? Other than that it sounds like you are doing everything right.

I used clomid, pre seed and soft cups last cycle as well. This cycle I ditched the soft cups and pre seed. 

It just may take a couple of cycles. 

Sorry for the disappointment on your birthday but.....happy birthday I hope the rest of your day goes well and you can enjoy it.
